Gesture Analysis for Physics Education Researchers
Scherr, Rachel E.
Physical Review Special Topics - Physics Education Research, v4 n1 p010101-1--010101-9 Jan-Jun 2008
Systematic observations of student gestures can not only fill in gaps in students' verbal expressions, but can also offer valuable information about student ideas, including their source, their novelty to the speaker, and their construction in real time. This paper provides a review of the research in gesture analysis that is most relevant to physics education researchers and illustrates gesture analysis for the purpose of better understanding student thinking about physics.
